Critics’ Comments

One of the sleepers of the vintage, the 2016 Siaurac is a gorgeous, racy Lalande de Pomerol endowed with tons of class and personality. Silky and
voluptuous, but not at all overdone, the 2016 finds a super-appealing stylistic middle ground that captures plenty of intensity in both aromas and flavors.
Blue/purplish fruit overtones, lavender, herbs and mint shade into the persistent, nuanced finish. Tasted three times.
89-92, ANTONIO GALLONI, VINOUS

These are good, bright and pliable tannins, and the fruit is extremely dark with good spice through the palate. I really like the cut herbs on the nose. This is
a wine that has improved over recent years and is really one to watch.
92, JANE ANSON, DECANTER

A dense and fruity wine with blackberry, licorice and mineral character. Solid center palate of fruit and tannins here. Fascinated to watch its development.
